NUMBERS OF THINGS

KIRKUS REVIEW

Numbers of things to count: ONE one lion, two cars, six acrobats, ten animals, twenty balloons, fifty ladybugs which indicates the numerical range, the spread of subjects, doesn't suggest the variety achieved in fourteen tall, skinny illustrations. Miss Oxenbury is the wife of John Burningham and these have some of his bravado, some of Erik Blegvad's whitnsey. Children will have to stay alert to count the separate objects they're not neatly lined up but this would do handsomely as, say, a second counting book.
